Siemens Canada has won a 23 MW order from Algonquin Power & Utilities Corp. for the Morse wind project, located in southern Saskatchewan.

Siemens will supply, deliver and commission 10 direct-drive SWT-2.3-113 turbines for the project, and the deal also includes a 10-year service and maintenance agreement. Construction is slated to begin this summer, with commercial operation expected by early 2015.

Siemens notes that the Morse project represents the company's first wind turbine installation in Saskatchewan.

"We are proud to help bring renewable, clean and reliable energy into the homes and businesses of Saskatchewan residents,” comments Jacob Andersen, vice president of wind power at Siemens Canada. “We look forward to investing in the province’s renewable energy future."
